Wisconsin was settled by hard working farm families, and today, farming remains one of the major industries of our state. Yet, according to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, agriculture is one of the two most dangerous industries in the United States. Injuries range from farm fatalities from equipment, of which there are dozens every year in Wisconsin, to machinery entanglements involving confined spaces, PTO shafts, grain augers, and more. Dangerous moving machinery can result in dismemberment, amputation, electrocution, or worse.
If you have been injured in a farm accident, there may be many causes that are not immediately obvious. For example, were the safety features defective, deficient, or disabled? Were there conditions hazardous to the operator which could have been easily corrected? Was the operator’s vision impaired by poor design of the machinery?
